One of the Filipino celebrities who is living a celebrity life since she was just a child is actress-beauty queen Ruffa Gutierrez.

Ruffa was part of several hit projects. Her journey into becoming a young lady, the times spent on the field of beauty pagents, and her settling down unfolded before the public’s eyes. She married Turkish businessman Yilmaz Bektas in 2003.

Yilmaz Bektas and Ruffa Gutierrez were blessed with two (2) daughters, Lorin and Venice. There is only a small gap in the ages of their daughters as she got pregnant with their second child only 7 months since she gave birth to her first-born. They lived in Istanbul, Turkey.

The actress-beauty queen admitted that settling down opened her to a lot of challenges. She had a lot of adjustments with regards to living with a husband and submitting but she is vocal that she did everything she can for their marriage to work.

Ruffa Gutierrez even tagged Yilmaz Bektas as her “true love” whom she gave and sacrifice everything for. She also stressed that she was able to do the things she thought she cannot do for their family to stick together.
